What Is the History of the Norbertine Leadership & Service Awards?
- The student life committee initiated the awards program in 1979 to recognize and thank students for the significant contributions they have made to campus life at St. Norbert College.
- Consistent with the mission of student affairs, students who receive an award must demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge, values, and skills necessary to change themselves, their community, and their world. These competencies are important because they are the hallmark of student learning outside of the classroom, and help manifest the personal attributes that embed the college’s core values in each of our students. This type of meaningful involvement in our community relates to the development of students in all areas of their lives – socially, psychologically, cognitively and intellectually.
